Municipal Partners: Join the province-wide movement!

Municipal Partners: Join the province-wide movement to have municipalities designate three days of each year to the Journées de la culture!

Culture pour tous is proud to join with the Les Arts et la Ville network in inviting Quebec municipalities to participate in its flagship event and to adopt a resolution proclaiming the last Friday of September and the two days thereafter each year to be the Journées de la culture.

In that regard, you will find below a resolution template containing a statement recognizing culture as a factor in building identity and developing quality of life, while highlighting the importance of the values of cultural democratization that guide municipalities in their actions.

By adopting this resolution, your municipality attests to its willingness to participate in this large-scale, province-wide democratization of culture event that is the Journées de la culture. The municipal council is also making a symbolic gesture that clearly and publicly states its attachment to the cultural identity of its community.

Culture is a major asset for the well-being of municipality residents. Many elected officials have already made the commitment to make culture a major development area for their community. Over the years, these municipal players have exercised constructive leadership and promoted alliances between organization and individuals involved in cultural development. The positive benefits are numerous. They consolidate the reputation, vitality and solidarity of their community.

Culture pour tous and Les Arts et la Ville are working together to further extend this movement of municipal proclamations of participation in the Journées de la culture. This is a fine opportunity for Quebec municipalities to highlight the vitality of their cultural engagement.
